“A Tribute on the Hudson” Luncheon Yacht Cruise

The Cabrini Mission Foundation remembered the 15th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 attacks by holding a “Tribute on the Hudson” luncheon yacht cruise.  Held aboard the Majestic Princess, guests boarded on Manhattan’s west side and enjoyed a three hour cruise of New York Harbor.

A memorial program, led by Sr. Pietrina Raccuglia and Dr. Lawrence J. Ottaviano, was held while the yacht idled off One World Trade Center.  Psalm 46 was read by Sr. Catherine Garry and Paul Michels.  The highlight of the presentation was a tossing of the memorial wreath by Sr. Frances Xavier Brogan and the release of 12 live butterflies led by Sr. Tommasina Lanski.  These two symbols remembered those who were lost and those who continued to live on after this tragedy.  Closing remarks were given by Sr. Diane Olmstead.

Cabrini Mission Foundation would like to thank all those in attendance as well as those who offered their prayers and support of this event.
